A Brazilian woman’s happy reunion with her biological mother this week turned into a nightmare when she learned that the brother she never knew existed is actually her husband of seven years.

The Daily Mail reports
Adriana, 39, and husband Leandro, 37, have a six-year-old daughter together.

Adriana was reconnected with her mother through Radio Globo’s The Time Is Now show, which reunites lost relatives. During the conversation, the mother told Adriana about her son, Leandro. As the conversation continued, Adriana realized that the brother being described to her was, in fact, her husband.

Adriana said she and her husband knew their mothers had the same name, but that it was a common name and they believed it to be a coincidence.

The couple reportedly never married legally, but have said they plan to stay together.

“All this happened because God wanted it to happen,” said Adriana.
